24/7 On-Demand Tutoring Helps California’s Aspire Public Schools Bridge Equity Gaps

Students receive individualized academic support and learn crucial self-advocacy skills

Expert tutors support teachers’ classroom goals and help close equity gaps

The dilemma

With many students from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, California’s Aspire Public Schools is committed to equity. They knew one-to-one support could help. But traditional in-person tutoring could not fill the gap, since many students are not able to attend in-person sessions outside of school hours.

The solution

Aspire Public Schools sought a solution that would meet students where they are—providing individualized support anywhere and at any time of day. Aspire chose Paper’s 24/7 on-demand tutoring platform, providing expert one-to-one tutoring across every subject area and in multiple languages.

The takeaway

After just a few short months of usage, students engaged in more than 2,600 learning moments with tutors and submitted hundreds of essays for expert review and feedback. Teachers and administrators praised Paper for promoting student self-advocacy, delivering much-needed academic support, enabling differentiated instruction and lightening the load on teachers.
